Dennys Food and Recipes: Readers Recipes: Apple Upside-Down Caramel Cake, Louises Birthday Cake: " Upside-down cake is one of the first cakes I learned to make when I was a child. They were so easy and even smelled good as you assembled them into the iron skillet which was our pan of choice.
This apple caramel cake is unusual in that it employs canned sweet potatoes too. We love our sweet potatoes in Louisiana and eat them all year long, finding new ways to use them. This is the first I've seen used in an upside-down cake. Everyone knows that brown sugar and sweet potatoes are a natural and perfect taste combination!
The second recipe for an unusual birthday cake uses a spice cake mix and pumpkin pie filling. That makes for a dense moist cake topped by cream cheese icing - low fat cream cheese and low fat whipped topping, of course. :) To gild the lily the special cake is topped off with white chocolate bark."
